halloween healthy snack


1/2 cup Apple butter

1/2 cup Butter, unsalted

1 cup powdered sugar

1 each Egg

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1 cup Whole wheat flour

1 3/4 cup All-purpose flour

1 teaspoon Baking powder

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1/4 cup Almonds, sliced

1/4 cup Strawberry jam


    • In a large bowl, beat the butter and apple butter until creamy. Mix in the sugar, egg and vanilla.

    • Add the dry mixture to the sugar mixture.
    • Preheat oven to 325° F
    • Using your hands roll a tablespoon of dough into a finger shape. Place the “fingers” on a greased cookie tray. Stick a sliced almond on the end of each finger for the fingernails. Use a table knife to make three indents for the knuckles.
    • Bake until lightly golden, about 17 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool.
    • In a small sauce pan, cook the strawberry jam over low heat until it reaches a thin consistency.
    • Remove from the heat and dip the “severed” end of each cookie into the sauce.
